Description of problem:
Could not parse metalink https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=fedora-17&arch=i386
Error: Error importing repomd.xml from fedora: unable to open /var/cache/yum/i386/17/fedora/repomd.xml
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora-17-Nightly-20120214.09-i686-Live-soas.iso (and live-Desktop)
Try to install from yum
Steps to Reproduce:
The application you chose ("") could not be found. Check the file name or choose another application.
This looks like a releng issue, not yum: # repo=fedora-17, arch=i386 is missing from the metalink stuff, if you look through the error output (click on the link above and open it in gedit). Assigning to releng people. Proposing as Alpha blocker, as this probably prevents updates working on i386 - "The installed system must be able to download and install updates with yum and the default graphical package manager in all release-blocking desktops".
Note this doesn't need a package update, so it's not a blocker that affects spinning.

Seems to also have been reported through trac, as https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-infrastructure/ticket/3142 .
this is fixed now. sorry for the trouble. ;(
There's a mirrormanager bug that was exposed, and will hopefully be fixed now.
